Alfredo Morelos Slaps Scott Brown On The Back Of The Head During Old Firm Derby
Alfredo Morelos slapped Scott Brown on the back of the head during the first Old Firm derby of the season.
The Rangers striker and the Celtic captain clashed moments before half-time on Saturday.
As both teams were getting into position for a Celtic free-kick, Morelos hit out at Brown - striking the midfielder who reacted angrily.
The Colombian walked away from the duel without looking at Brown.
Ex-Hoops star Chris Sutton believes Morelos was lucky to avoid a red card.
On Twitter, he wrote: "Rangers the better team and deservedly ahead... not so sure Morelos should still be on the pitch."

One social media user joked: "Morelos vs. Brown... things of dream."
A second wrote: "Only Morelos could do this to Scott Brown."
A third added: "Morelos is the only person stupid enough to smack Scott Brown round the back of the head."
Connor Goldson gave Rangers the lead in the 9th minute before scoring again in the 54th minute.
